The Gerzeul hoard of coins of Caesarea of Cappadocia (in the Museum of Abkhazia) / Mikhail G. Abramzon

Revue Numismatique 159 (2003) p. 243-256, pl. 2-9

Abstract:

The article discusses the Abkhazian Museum's part of the Gerzeul hoard of silver coins of Caesarea in Cappadocia discovered in 1926 in the Suhumi district of Abkhazia. The Gerzeul Hoard, consisting of more than 467 silver coins, of which 91 were purchased by the Museum, was deposited under Marcus Aurelius, probably during the eastern campaigns of Lucius Verus, in the period between AD 163, when the Romans confirmed Sohaemus as king of Armenia, and AD 168, during the revolt of Tiridates, or sometime later.

Le trésor de Myrmekion de statères cyzicènes / Mikhail G. Abramzon et Nina A. Frolova

Revue Numismatique 163 (2007) p. 15-44, pl. 1-6

Abstract:

In 2003 the hoard of 99 electrum staters of Cyzicus was found during the excavations of the city-state of Myrmekion (the Bosporus Cimmerian). It contains staters of 53 different types including one unpublished type dated to 400-380 B.C. The earlier coin of the hoard is dated to 550-500 B.C. The Myrmekion hoard was buried in the first quarter of the 4th century B.C. This date coincides with the archaeological context of the 'Demeter sanctuary' where the bronze olpe with the hoard was hidden.

Abstract:

The American Numismatic Society recently acquired 39 unpublished coins from the archaic Asyut hoard IGCH 1644). Two of the more enigmatic coins from this lot are presented here, the first of which is almost certainly an issue of Cyrenaica. The second coin poses greater problems. The only other known example was attributed to Chalcis in the early 20th century, an attribution which is here examined, and ultimately rejected.

Abstract:

A recent hoard containing at least 76 Athenian owls, both imitations and authentic types, and two silver 'dumps' is catalogued and discussed. Dating from the late fourth century BC, the hoard shows remarkable affinity to the owl components of two other late-fourth century hoards, the 1989 Syria and 1973 Iraq hoards.

Abstract:

The Brussels Coin Cabinet acquired in 1969 a part of what is clearly a larger hoard of drachms struck during the 4th c. BCE at the mints of Sinope and Amisus. Investigating the dispersion of that hoard through a careful analysis of sale's catalogues, the study explores how and by what channels such a large hoard was dispersed.

Revue Belge de Numismatique 129 (1983) p. 23-60, pl. 6-7

Abstract:

In 1963, the Coin Cabinet of the Royal Library of Belgium bought a large lot (127 drachms) of an Hellenistic hoard found in Denizli (Turkey). A full catalogue of this hoard is given: most of the coins are drachms of Alexander the Great (Lampsacus, 24; Abydus: 15; Magensia: 18; Sardis: 10; "Colophon": 36; Teos: 3; Mylasa: 2; Miletus: 5; Side: 2; uncertain: 12). The study of the weights (along with those of other similar hoards as "Armenak" and Cavalla) strongly suggests a burial date late in the 3rd c. BC (c. 230-210 BC - a fact confirmed by the presence of 2 overstrikes: Byzantium and Chalkedon). Confronting the contents of these hoards to the available die-studies (Miletus and Sardis), it turns out that they produce representzative results of the quantities supposed to have been struck. In addition, we try to estimate the full production of the silver drachms in the name of Alexander the Great (c. 3,000 obverse dies).

Abstract:

A small hoard of coins found near Ismailiya, Egypt, in 1983 turns out to be helpful for establishing a pre-400 BCE date for some Philistian issues. It will be argued that the Philistian inhabitants started minting Athenian-styled coins before the Attic output came to a sudden stop during the Deceleian War (413–404 BCE).

A Hacksilber and cut Athenian tetradrachm hoard from the environs of Samaria : late fourth century BCE / Haim Gitler

Source:

Israel Numismatic Research 1 (2006) p. 5-14, pl. 1-2

Abstract:

A hoard from the vicinity of Samaria illustrates that the practice of using cut coins alongside broken pieces of silver ingots and jewelry (Hacksilber) continued into the second half of the fourth century BCE. Both the Hacksilber and the cut coins must have circulated as bullion and thus involved weighing in transactions. Prior to this discovery, mixed hoards of this period were composed mainly of uncut coins supplemented by Hacksilber in equal or greater quantities.

Abstract:

A hoard consisting of seven Persian Yehud obols and one Philistian issue of the same denomination reportedly found in the vicinity of Ramallah provides evidence for the probable circulation of Philistian coins in the central mountain ridge (the northern borders of the Persian province of Judah) side by side with the local Yehud coins. It also represents an important addition to the remarkably scanty record for Persian period Palestinian hoards (two of three Philistian and two Samarian hoards) and especially those including Yehud issues (three hoards).

Coin hoards. Vol. IX: Greek hoards / ed. by Andrew Meadows & Ute Wartenberg. - London : Royal Numismatic Society, 2002. - P. 259-268

Abstract:

A hoard of forty-six bronze coins and one diobol dated from 412–404 until c. 100 BC was found at the excavations of Ascalon. Their places of origin can perhaps offer a suggestion as to how these coins came to be collected. Teos, Samos, Kos, Knidos, Rhodes, Lycia (Xanthus Valley, with Patara as its sea port), Side, Paphos, Antioch (Seleucia) and Tyre are all located along a known, natural and logical seafaring route and in all of them remnants of ancient harbours can be traced. The article suggest that this hoard may have been gathered by a sailor during the voyage (or voyages) of a merchantman. If this were indeed the case it would seem that all these issues were in circulation at the time in the places concerned. This would imply that in c. 100 BC, in the cities and islands of the Western coast of Asia Minor, the coins in circulation dated between the late fourth century and the beginning of the first century BC. This temporal dispersion seems rather unusual and, of course, further evidence is needed in order either to confirm such simultaneous circulation or to suggest an alternative explanation for the composition of this hoard.

Abstract:

This article presents a small archaic hoard of silver coins which was probably found on Cyprus and which was deposited in c. 478 BC. Its main interest lies in the fact that it includes the fragment of a tetradrachm of Eretria with an octopus reverse and a Cypriot stater of an uncertain mint whose reverse bears an octopus copied from an Eretrian prototype.

Abstract:

This hoard of the later 6th century BC consists of 903 minute silver coins in essentially two denominations, and 77 pieces of unminted silver, over half of which are small, unweighed disks apparently made for monetary exchange. The coins are the earliest coins of Colophon, and the circumstance that they are smaller than all but three of the pieces of unminted silver suggests that when the hoard was buried the Colophonians were employing what might be termed a bi-specie monetary system: small coins for very low level transactions, and bullion weighed on the balance for transactions involving more substantial sums.

Source:

Revue Numismatique 163 (2007) p. 45-90, pl. 7-12

Abstract:

The so-called hoard consists of 135 coins and two silver ingots found in the cella of the temple of Leto in 1975, 2001 and 2002. It consists in one Lycian coin from the Dynastic period, coins of Rhodian types (imitations and plinthophoric coins), of the Lycian League, of Antiphellus, of Attaleia, one denarius of Titus, one Roman provincial coin and two late Roman bronzes (Securitas reipublicae type). Concerning the Rhodian coins and the federal Lycian coins, the author is led to offer a new chronology, and correct different attributions and the identification of some denominations, with the help of the inscriptions. It is difficult to interpret this so-called hoard, which was not closed, but it clearly demonstrates that Rhodian coins were an important component of the monetary circulation in Lycia at the end of the Hellenistic period.

Abstract:

The 'Black Sea' hoard, an important deposit of 434 tetradrachms, is published here for the first time. It contains Alexander tetradrachms, including many from Callatis, Cabyle, Dionysopolis, Mesembria, and Odessus, as well as Lysimachi and Seleucid coins. The chronology of the Lysimachi of Byzantium and Chalcedon is reassessed, so that some varieties formerly dated towards the end of the century can now be placed earlier between 230 and 225 bc.1 The lack of countermarked coinage in this hoard leads the authors to propose that the countermarks so well known from the Büyükçekmece hoard were not introduced until shortly before 220 bc. The most prominent Seleucid variety in the hoard is a group of closely related issues of Antiochus II and Antiochus Hierax distinguished by the letters ΙΣ, which the authors attribute to Istrus. The authors date the hoard’s burial ca. 225–223 bc.

Abstract:

This paper aims to document a 'Hacksilber hoard' that was auctioned in the 'Classical Numismatic Group'. Although the location of this set of coins is unknown, we think that its origin was surely the Eastern Mediterranean, specifically the Syrian-Palestinian corridor. Because of the latest coin found in the treasure, it was buried at the end of fifth century BC. Also, the composition of hoard raises some issues, such as thecirculation of the Athenian coinage, its main coin type.

This paper examines the evidence for four hoards containing cistophoric coinage: Smyrna, 1865 (IGCH 1340); Afyon, before 1876 (IGCH 1415); Unknown find spot, c. 1986 (CH 8.537); Unknown find spot, c. 1990 (CH 8.447, 8.525, 8.526 and 8.539). All, it is argued, date to the 1st century BC.

Abstract:

The Bakërr Hoard (IGCH 559), preserved for the most part in the Tirana Archaeological Institute, is the most important witness for the monetary relations between Epirus and the Greek cities of the Illyrian coast. It was buried at the end of the third Macedonian war. Examination of the coins minted by Apollonia and Dyrrachion confirms our previous conclusions concerning the organisation of the minting : the minters' main efforts were spent on the obverse, whereas the reverse required only technical expertise. The hoard sheds new light on the chronology of the main coinage of Epirus. The most significant of the 13 issues in the hoard appears not to have been minted after the overthrow of the king but rather when Molossos declared war on the Romans.

Revue Numismatique 169 (2012) p. 51-62

Abstract:

The Asyut hoard is a very interesting example of the hoards consisting of coins from many mints buried in different regions of the Persian Empire between 500 and 480 or 465 B. C. The history of the discovery and its scientific publication are briefly reviewed. Analysing the hoard’s composition then underlines the vast proportion of coins from Greek cities or Thracian tribes minted in Aegean Thracia with the metal from the “ Pangean” silver mines. How did so many coins make their way to Egypt ? The comparison with other hoards of similar composition suggests some connection with the Persian military expeditions in Greece during the same period.

Abstract:

In 1998 the Athens Numismatic Museum acquired part of a hoard (thirteen silver staters of Akanthos, Mende and Skione), that allegedly had been discovered in the early 1990s at or near the site of ancient Skione in the Chalkidike and was dispersed in the market. The hoard contained silver staters of local mints (26-70 of Akanthos, 90-100 of Mende, 45-50 of Skione and 1 of Poteidaia), struck in the first half of the 5th century BC, and possibly 20 Athenian tetradrachms. The notably increased production of silver staters in the Chalkidike during the decades of 480s and 470s BC, and its subsequent restriction to the mints of Akanthos and Mende, resulted in the older issues circulating widely in the area till the third quarter of the 5th century BC. The concealment of the hoard on the basis of its Mende context should be dated after 440 BC. An Athenian component – provided it actually existed – might connect its burial with the Athenian military operations in the Chalkidike during the first decade of the Peloponnesian war. However, Athenian coinage could have reached the area at a much earlier date. The ‘owls’ were broadly accepted by the allies and Athenians would have encouraged various payments – such as tribute to the Delian League – in Attic money even before the enactment of their so-called Standards (or Coinage) Decree.

Abstract:

This article presents part of an allegedly Syrian hoard including 75 Alexander III, Philip III Arrhidaeus and Seleucus I tetradrachms and compares it with other contemporaneous regional hoards. The hoard was buried after 294 BCE. The author examines the possibility that some Alexander III coins attributed by Price to 'Babylon' may have in fact been struck more locally.
